How the fund is making a difference

Over 8 days when the Fund launched in March 2020, we received an overwhelming response, with nearly 5,000 applications from small charities, with requests totaling more than £39 million.

Since then, we've paid grants to over 1,250 charitable organisations across the UK, totaling more than £6.4 million. In addition to an initial £5 million made available by CAF, contributions from private individuals, trusts and businesses have added more than £1 million to the fund. The Fund is now closed to further applications. 

We've also been working with 360Giving to publish information about the grants paid from fund.

Other ways we're supporting charities 

We're continuing to explore and share opportunities to support charitable organisations at this difficult time.
